    The test didn't include staphylococcus. This is my protocol you asked about-
    I started with 25 days of Rifaximin. I have been taking herbal antibiotics- ceylon cinnamon, thyme, oil of oregano, holy basil, and neem, daily for 9 months, along with glutamine, colostrum, a low carb diet. and probiotics.

    After 6 months I added in prebiotics to feed the probiotic bacteria in my gut.

    I also take 3 grams of omega 3's (epa/dha) and 500mg curcumin daily for gut inflammation and inflammation in general. I often feel almost completely normal, with the only noticeable symptom being a very minor headache.

    I still get PEM if I do more than 4-6 hours of physical activity. It's hard to put into words though, how much my quality of life has improved!!

    I also accept this protocol, but for now I feel good. The poorest ingredient is Capristatin.

    I plan to remove it. Usually I tell KDM what I want to cancel, and he agrees.

    Why did he prescribed you this herbal protocol for SIBO? what kind of overgrowth do you have?
    @Olena

    Is there a test for SIBO? He never told me that I have SIBO and I don't think I have SIBO symptoms.
    My digestive problems is actually only poor stool quality and itching after bowel movement.
    Don't have bloating, cramps, stomachache and also I don't respond well on Betain HCL.

    But I know that KDM told other patients that if you have high bacteroidetes (about 45%, instead of <10%) than they will also be in the small intestine.

    Currently I'm taking Ornidazol and I think I respond pretty well. But there will me more ABX courses needed.

    I have the confirmation of Arminlabs Lyme Elispot (low) and many symptoms of brucellosis (there is no confirmation on the analysis Red labs). But KDM does not risk giving me antibiotics, because strong immunodeficiency in macrophages and nk cells, and high candida(.
    The stool analysis showed the growth of clostridia, and I asked for an herbal protocol.

    @ljimbo423 and others. Would a normal cd14 level generally rule out leaky gut?

    No normal cd14 levels don't exclude leaky gut. Neither for good Zonulin levels
